Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

$450K to pound the Natural (and we haven't counted the PPV royalties yet)

When Brock Lesnar made the jump from the WWE to the NFL, a lot of folks snickered at the move. But if Stephen Neal, they person he lost to in the NCAA Finals (wrestling) could do it, he probably could do better. In case you all want to know, Neal is with the New England Patriots.

Except that he got cut by the Minessota Vikings and went back to pro wreslting in Japan.

Now that he's in UFC, he's one of the biggest stars at the moment after he dethroned the heavyweight champ the Natural, Randy Couture.

Couture was overwhelmed in two rounds by Lesnar's speed and power. Not to mention his agility. Quite a potent mix, wreslting and the new MMA skills he's acquired.

Now it's time for him to fight some of the other bad ass guys in the UFC.
